My love affair with Peripera’s lip tints started when I was studying in Seoul and got myself two of their original Peri’s Ink lip tints after seeing how amazing it looked on my friend (and her assurances that it was the best tint she had ever used). Back then, I liked make up but I wasn’t very well versed nor experimental with the products that I used, so I didn’t really know what to expect. What I got blew my mind though and the two ended up as a staple for my daily make up. A year after, I took another trip to Seoul and found out that Peripera had since released a bunch of other variations – the Moisture, Velvet and Airy lines. I ended up trying the first two, but I hadn’t actually touched the Airy line until now.
BB Cosmetic had sent me over four of these tints to try out and review – which I am so thankful for! These are all of the original colours except for #1 Heart Grapefruit (which I wasn’t sure would suit me) so the make up hoarder in me is really glad to almost have a full set. They have also released some new colours which I will be checking out later on. For now, let’s move onto this review and I can tell you in advance that I am really happy with these!
Remember to check out BB Cosmetic to get your hands on these (or any other products from Peripera). they have free international shipping with no minimum purchase, and you can also get an additional 8% off with my code (which I don’t make money from, but will bring down that cart total): QAL3F6ZA8YZ
So I definitely have a thing for Laneige and I even up determined to try out every two toned product that they release – this two tone tint bar was no different and I was so excited when I saw this online. I have used their standard two tone bars before (and the eyeshadow bar, which was very disappointing) and although I liked the colour, I found that the formula tended to accent dry lips. With the introduction of the Two Tone Tint Lip Bar, I had hoped that this issue would be amended.
Similar to the previous product, this product has two colours and formulas – a coloured ‘tint’ side that has a more opaque and creamier consistency, and a balm side. These two sides are layered in a way to create a gradient lip effect in a single swipe.
I had watched a few YouTube reviews of this when it was first released and heard that the colours weren’t too different to each other, so I ended up choosing two shades that I liked most – a light pink and a deeper burgundy. Coincidentally, these were both ‘Sungkyung’s Choice’ – #03 Tint Mint and #08 Cherry Milk.
These Two Tone Tint Bars were sent to me by BB Cosmetic for review and you can also get them on their store for USD$21.78 – this includes free international shipping, and you can also get an additional 8% off with my code (which I don’t make money from, but will bring down that cart total): QAL3F6ZA8YZ
Honestly, I first saw this Lip Sleeping Mask online and then in store when I was in Korea and I did want to try it (because it smells amazing) but it’s taken me so long to do this just because I wasn’t convinced that this would be an interesting product. In my eyes, I figured that it just looked like glorified Vaseline, and I’m not even a fan of Vaseline (which is basically petroleum oil jellied) except for in desperately dry times. However, when I was going through BB Cosmetic‘s website, I figured that I might as well give it a shot!
At the moment, they carry four different versions: Berry (the original one), Grapefruit, Apple and Vanilla (which are from the holiday release). I was pretty keen to try all of them, to be honest, but considering that BB Cosmetic were going to generously send me them for review, I chose the original Berry one – and will probably purchase the others at a later date just for the different scents.
I had these photos and this post drafted for so long that I was beginning to forget that I hadn’t written the review yet! These are two products that I recently received from BB Cosmetic to review and I have been using them almost daily. Some people may know that I’ve tried out a few Son & Park products in the past and they have generally always left a good impression on me, so I had pretty high hopes for these products.
The first product that I chose was the Flawless Pore Pact, which is a pressed translucent powder, as I’ve been wanting to try a few more of these products. I’ve also been looking for something that would be easy to carry around for touch ups. The second product that I checked out is theShading Presso, which is a three toned pressed contour palette – and I was pretty keen to try this out as I recently started to hit pan on my favourite Artclass by Rodin Shading and I wanted to try some new ones before I repurchased anything.
I’ve been testing out these products for quite a while so read on for my full review and, if you’d like to get your hands on them yourself, you can go to BB Cosmetic – and don’t forget to use my code for 8% off. I don’t make any money from it, but you do save a bit, which is always nice: QAL3F6ZA8YZ
SSIN is one of my favourite Youtubers, seriously, and so when she released her first collaboration with Unpretty Rapstar, I was ridiculously excited but it was difficult to get my hands on the products because I don’t live in Korea and the brand was still relatively new at the time (I think so, anyway). I wanted to buy it while I was in Korea but I ended up leaving without it… and in retrospect, I sort of wonder why I did so. Since then though, I’ve been fawning over it online and it’s taken me so long but I finally got my hands on it. BB Cosmetic recently sent me multiple products from this entire line to write about. Regrettably, these products are now being discontinued and SSIN has moved onto her second collaboration (and this time, it’s with Too Cool For School) but I enjoyed these products so much that I wanted to write about them anyway. If they are an example of the sort of products we can expect from Unpretty Rapstar, I’ll be looking to trying out more things from their brand too. In Korea, they are sold at a fashion store called Wonderplace but, for those who are internationally based like myself, you can find these products at BB Cosmetic.
At the time of writing this, these products are still available on the website but only in extremely limited quantities, so get in fast if you’re wanting to get them. BB Cosmetic does free shipping for all orders (no order limit) and you can also get 8% off with my blogger’s code: QAL3F6ZA8YZ. They also have a great range of other things that you can check out too.
I think that Son & Park might be my new obsession? At least, what I’ve tried from them has been really good and so I’m crazy keen to try everything else. Those who know me know that I have a thing for brands – when I love something (like CLIO, Laneige or my new found love for 3CE) then I will be pretty loyal to the brand. In a way, this makes me an ideal consumer because you can make a lot of money off of me. However, since I trust in a brand so much, it’s also really important to keep impressing me because my judgement tends to stay ingrained in me for a long time.
This product was only the second that I tried to Son & Park (the first being the Lip Cube) but I’m already pushed it onto my list of HG base/foundation make up products because it ticked off so many boxes for me. Of course, considering that this brand was created by two top celebrity make up artists – and it’s always great when the people in charge actually know make up and aren’t just business people – I had high expectations for them.
This is the Son & Park Glow Ring Foundation – which is the dewy version of their foundation sticks (the other is a fit version, which I haven’t tried before). It was a welcome change from all of the cushion foundations that I’ve been testing lately and it’s not a secret that I actually love balm type base products, though I’ve been a bit hesitant with foundation sticks. I was worried that this would be heavy or difficult to use but, instead, I’ve been totally obsessed with it and I reach for it every time I want a simple, natural look.
This product was sent to me for review by BB Cosmetic and you can get this one their website. Remember to also use my code for 8% off your purchase: QAL3F6ZA8YZ (I don’t make any money from you using this, but you do get a discount so why not?)
For this review, I’m writing about a lip colour that has seriously been rocking my world lately. I’m a big lover of deep berry colours and I find myself reaching for them repeatedly – regardless of what formula it is, or if I’m attempting to buy something new. Aside from how it matches my skin tone really well, I also love how a good berry tone can be really deep and matches well with gold and copper eye make up. Overall, it’s really my go to sort of look. I’ve been reaching for this product a lot since I first got it; the colour completely wowed me and I knew that I would be attached to it regardless.
I recieved this product from BB Cosmetic to review and it was sort of a pleasant surprise because I wasn’t actually expecting to get this – but they seemed to almost read my mind and sent me the exact shade that I would be fawning over. This one of the Air Tint Lip Cube from Son & Park. This brand is headed by two Korean celebrity make up artists Son Daek Shik and Park Tae Yun (hence the brand name) and their beauty water is crazy raved about and is basically a kbeauty cult product.
Although I haven’t tried anything from Son & Park before (nope, not even the beauty water), I do have high expectations for their products! BB Cosmetic sent me a couple of their things to test out and I’ll be reviewing this one first up. Ready? Let’s go.
I first saw these shadow duos on Youtube and, being a bit fan of shimmer and glitter myself, I really wanted to try them. The one hesitation that I had, however, is that I haven’t had very good experiences with liquid eyeshadows in the past – those that I’ve tried have been difficult to blend, crease very easily and look really messy when applied (maybe I just don’t have that magic skill). When BB Cosmetic approached me about reviewing this though, I just couldn’t say no.
These eyeshadow duos come in five original colours – Margaret (champagne), Eldora (gold), Talia (silver), Adelio (burgundy) and Lottie (plum). There are also an additional five colours, but I’m unsure if these were released later as I don’t see them around as much – Lala, Irina, Sonia, Trudy and Linda. These seem to be more colourful shades, while the originals are more wearable, metallic colours.
According to the website, “these dual eye shadows offers rich, metallic pigment with a foil finish in one swipe.” The metallic pigment is the liquid eyeshadow while, on the other side, you have your matching glitter pigment. I tested these out of a few different occasions and – seriously – I love them. I’m very tempted to buy the other shades as well.

I was really hoping to post the video for this at the same time as this post but, with this sudden cough that’s struck me – and the lung that is no doubt threatening to be coughed up – I’m not sure if I’m particularly up for that one right now. However, it is definitely coming up and I will be updating this post once it is!
Launching right into the review, these are three of the new lipsticks from the 3CE Red Recipe collection. I was super excited when this new range come out because I’m a lover and a believer of the classic red lip. Their last Mood Recipe collection was also really popular but, truth be told, I’ve been getting quite tired of seeing browns everywhere and I was so glad for a change.
The 3CE Red Recipe collection comes with five lipsticks (in both matte and original finishes), two red blushes (which I am itching to get my hands on) and three nail polishes. For this review, I’ll be talking about three shades of the lipsticks: Moon, Fig and Ruby Tuesday. These are all bright but also very wearable shades with subtle differences, and all three of them can easily transition from work, date to evening make up.
I received these products to review from BB Cosmetic, so feel free to check out their website if you’re interested in these products. They stock all five shades of the lipsticks and both of the blushes.

I’m finally writing the review for these! To be honest, I’m not sure why it had taken me so long because I’ve been using these since I first got them (and formed an opinion quite quickly) but I guess that I’ve been putting it off while getting so stuck into my new colourpop lipsticks. Alas, I’ve finally decided to write this review now because I only have a week until I head off to Japan for three weeks and, after that, I’m expecting that I will have some Japanese products to review and more kbeauty products coming in the mail as well! Basically, it’s going to get busy on here, and I’m excited.
Moving on, this is my review on 3CE’s Liquid Lip Color. I picked up a few of these when I was in Korea split over two or three visits. I actually thought that I only had two of the colours but was surprised to find out that I bought four – this always happens to me. Either way, I was totally suckered in by the cute packaging and the super opaque colours. This was one of the first liquid lipsticks that I had used since this became a trend (I first used matte liquid lipsticks – on performances – when I was maybe thirteen) so I’ve since been comparing it to a few other formulas that I’ve tried.
